Shameful: In Statement On Murder Of Three Teens, Obama Calls On “All Parties To Refrain From Steps That Could Further Destabilize The Situation”


obama2President Barack Obama issued a statement in response to news of the deaths of the Naftali Frenkel, Eyal Yifrach and Gil-Ad Shaer.

“On behalf of the American people I extend my deepest and heartfelt condolences to the families of Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar, and Naftali Frenkel – who held Israeli and American citizenship.

“As a father, I cannot imagine the indescribable pain that the parents of these teenage boys are experiencing. The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms this senseless act of terror against innocent youth.

“From the outset, I have offered our full support to Israel and the Palestinian Authority to find the perpetrators of this crime and bring them to justice, and I encourage Israel and the Palestinian Authority to continue working together in that effort. I also urge all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation.

“As the Israeli people deal with this tragedy, they have the full support and friendship of the United States.”

  1. he is party to the situation that enables the evil to flourish. By lumping the PA and Israel into one sentence, to say that everyone must show restraint to avoid further inflammation, he is showing kindness to the perpetrators, which is showing cruelty to the victims. It will happen again unless the Israeli government shows restraint. Only if they come down hard will this type to obscene event cease.

  2. Chutzpa to imply that Palestinians are working with Israel ” to find the Perpetrators” when the Palestinian government works in tandem with the perpetrators. Hopefully U.S. will elect a president with integrity next time.

  3. Is he stupid? Making believe the PA is interested in apprehending the murderers? He doesn’t know the PA will reward them with the US money he sends them? No wonder Benghazi happened. And the loss of Iraq. Gives clear meaning to the words ‘lack of intelligence’.
    On top of that, he is, as we’ve seen,’ a liar. He’s as happy as any Arab that Israel is in pain.

  4. In Koheles Shlomo Hamelecch writes there is a time and place for various things. I would like to add one more. Mr. Obama there is a time to keep your dumb comments to yourself.
    Now is not a time for restraint.

  5. All of the deranged individuals that are celebrating this cold blood murder have not restrained themselves from “destabilizing the situation”

    What about all the rockets being fired at innocents from Gaza? Isn’t that act of war “destabilizing the situation”?

    What about all the violent resistance and interference from deranged Arabs the IDF has had to put up with these last couple of weeks? Quite “destabilizing” no?

    Obama had a decent statement going until he almost got to the end.

    That’s all you ever hear from the left: restraint, a balanced approach, measured, etc.

    Hey, Obama: We are dealing with deranged lunatics and you have the temerity to talk about “refraining from steps that could further destabilize the situation”?

    For whatever it is worth, as a father, at least you finally opened your mouth in condemnation of this butchery of children.

  6. BTW — Don’t get me wrong. All this moral equivalency at the end of Obama’s statement is truly sickening. Equating innocents with lunatic troglodytes is truly typical left wing foreign policy chazerai.

  7. Yeh, yeh… I’m sure he sincerely cares…
    ” I also urge all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation”…What is this nonsense all about?? Who is he fooling???
    Those human animals understand only one language, and I don’t mean any friendly peace talks!!

  8. I have watched Obama do and say stupid things for a while, but always kept my comments to myself because of kavod malchus. I can no longer. The man is a perfect foil for our last president, who was an intelligent, honest man, with integrity, who somehow managed to sound dumb at times. He cared about the country, cared about humanity and knew how to deal with situations, regardless of the difficulty.

  9. charliehall, your silence is deafening. Didn’t you vote for this guy twice and crowned him president? And you would do it again if you could? Well, if it’s not Barry, it’s Hillary. Same human trash.

  10. As all of Klal Yisrael, I too am davastated by todays tragic news. I extend my heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families. May the rebono shel olam give them the chizuk they need at this very trying time in their lives. Th only chizuk we can take at a time when our even closest allies make utterly non-sensical statements as our president did today, is the pasuk, “le’esor malcheihem b’zikim v’nichbideihem b’chavlei barzel la’asos bohem mishpat kasuv…” We all await that Yom hagadol v’hanorah, when we will be shown the retribution that Hashem will give to all our “friends” out there – the leaders and commoners – among umos ha’olam, B’meheira b’yameinu!!

  11. To the honorable president Obama ,husband of the first lady Michelle CEO of the new lunch menu in our schools, and wannabe father of Trayvon Martin obm.
    I commened you on calling for restraint and I humbly suggest that it start with you.
    Your red line in Syria has turned green to the point that only 200,000 people have been killed with your restraint
    You are the best………

  12. You have to remember about 75% of the American Jews voted for this man 2x, so one cannot whine about his policies if not once but twice he was voted in by a large percentage of Jews.
    Next time investigate who you vote for and maybe it will not be that much of a disaster.

  13. Mr. Obama is not high on the list of friends of Israel and he never was. He is not Jimmy Carter, but he is not Batman either. I would think that Carter even might understand an Israeli response.

    Obama can be his amazing self. Torah will not restrict its own modality of justice when the horse in the romper room suite of Disney Land is asking for a reason to jump.

    Sad but Mr. Obama is not a peaceful eye. Just a suit with a good return on his educational evening of time.

    Fractured Solidarity with Hope.

  14. I’m sure the United States would restrain themselves if it had happened there !?! Perhaps the president should think how he would have reacted had it been his daughter and I doubt very much he would have made such a statement then.
    In the end we have to know that we can’t turn to anyone, not even our pretend “friends”; am Israel can only turn to Hachem

  15. As I wrote last week, the State Department has a history of using this phrase. Under Bush, Condoleeza Rice used those exact words-as Gaza dropped tens of bombs on civilian Israel. It is a type of passive-aggresive anti-semitism , and perhaps in Obama’s case, a way to show partial solidarity with Muslems. They hate him anyway. He just hasn’t learned.

  16. Let’s prétend for à moment That the obama’s girls were the kidnapped ones, what do you hâve to say Mr Président?

  17. Wonder what he would say if it were his own children????? Would he call Jesse Jackson to rally? Would he say, show restraint? He is one of them.

  18. BHO is a narcissistic egomaniac, unable to like or care about anyone, unless he is a moslem/Arab. BHO needs to be given a spanking and sent home.

  19. Well, like the Kenyan said, if he had a son it would be the hoodlum Trayvon Martin. So maybe he takeh would show restraint. I think Mischelle is driving him crazy.

  20. I can’t look at this man’s face anymore I want to vomit – when is this man’s presidency over – Pharoah revisited

  21. This creep in the White House clearly has a soft spot in his heart for anti-Western Muslim extremists and antipathy for pro-Westerners. Look at his record on Israel, Egypt, Iran, and Libya. A self-loving power-mad demon.

  22. What’s even more disgusting this while time we didn’t hear a peep from Obama about the kidnapping – with the girls in Africa he came out strongly- but the while time the IDF was out looking for the boys Obama said nothing we only heard a few words of nonsense do from Obama puppet named kerry.

  23. Mr. Obama said in response to the death of Trayvon Martin that “I f I had a son he would look like Trayvon” A natural response yet the President remains clueless that to the Jewish community these three boys are our sons, they look like my children. To conclude by calling on both parties to continue following Mr. Obama’s failed policies how clueless how insensitive. Does President get it Israel is facing enemies who do not share values of compromise or co-existence. The only way to bring peace is by making the price for the boys’ murders and the lack of condemnation and actual celebration over the boys’ abduction among PLO controlled area so steep they will never ever repeat this most horrific act.

  24. with all this complaining about Obama now why did the Jews vote for the man twice. He is still the same man you voted for, the leopard does not change his spots. Now he is not the man you made up in your mind, he is the man in reality and was always the same arrogant, egotistical, human he was before.
